WHAT THE STATISTICS SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
WHAT THE STATISTICS SHOW. Statistics show that there is more deaths from whooping cough than from scarlet fever, but we have yet to hear of a case proving fatal when Chamberlain's Cough Remedy was used. It should be given at the first symptom, repeating the dose fre quently. The quick relief afforded by Cham berlain's Cough Remedy makes it a favor ite with mothers of young children. It liquidifies the tough mucus, making it easier to expectorate, keeps the cough loose, and counteracts any ; tendencys towards pneumonia. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has been used in many epidemics of whoop ing cough with perfect success. Sold every where.
Germany and England. WANTED: A MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
Germany and England. WANTED: A MAN. There is danger ahead. Mr. Asqluith has told us so, Lord Roberts has told us so, Sir Edward Grey ha3 told us so. And we are not 1 ' ready to meet that danger. And we are not * 'making ready to meet that danger. And the great majority of our people are oblivious of that danger refuse to recognise its exiB tence. A few years algo Lord Wolseley said: 'We are never ready for war, and yet we never have a Cabinet that dare tell the peo ple this truth/' That is a grave statement of a grave dan ger. vLet us consider what that statement implies. It implies that we have had many uam nets who were conscious of the unreadiness for war and were afraid to tell the people what they knew. It implies that Cabinet after Cabinet has failed of its duty to the nation through fear. It implies that Cabinet after^ Cabinet, knowing the Empire is unsafe, has proved too cowardly and disloyal to ask for refor mation or to give the alarm. It implies that British Cabinets are ...
COTTON THREAD [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
COTTON THREAD For almost a hundred years no one ever thought of making thread other than linen and silk. Cotton was not as much as thought of. Then, Napoleon who had been rWasrat ing Europe, thought he would strike a blow at the silk industry of Hamburg, so he caused the stocks of silk to be burnt. The thread-makers of Paisley, thus, found their supplies of raw material cut off, and they had to look about to find a substitute. Cot ton was tried, and was found to answer the purpose so well that*, the basis of an entire ly new industry was laid— the manufacture of 'cotton' thread.
Correspondence. "The Rejecteds." (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
[?] ' TIip Rpippfaifc ' : (To the Ed-tor.) Sir,— I think it is about time' the Defence Department took some steps towards the issuing badges of some description to all those young men who have volunteered for the front and have been rejected by the ?. medical officer. I happen to be one of these 'rejecteds,' and very often I am asked,. 'Why don't you go?' When I reply that I volunteered before last Christmas and failed to pass the doctor, in nine cases out of ten. I am laughed at, and told, 'We've only got: ^ your word for that.' It comes very un pleasant at times, and people class us among, the 'shirkers.' I know of. several young men in the same position as myself, and! if the Defence Department Issued badges as suggested, it would save ua a lot of incon venience. — Yours, etc., / 'REJECTED.' [We are glad 'Rejected' has written to. us in this strain. We ourselves know of at least a dozen young men who have done their duty in volunteering and have been rejected. ; To have 'cast in ...

ELIZA McNASTY PROMISES TO BECOME ELIZA KNAGGS. The. postman always calls at our place about breakfast time. On Monday morning Mary, the maid brought in quite a bundle of letters.

DISEASE IN AMBUSH. GERMS ROUTED FROM THE LAUNDRY. It is only diseases that are infectious that can lie ? in ambush, ready to launch death amongst the inmates of a home, and when we search the home for the readiest place of ambush we find it in the laundry. This is a statement of fact easily provable : the laundry claims and ( cleanses every week the clothes we wear, our bed, table, kitchen, and bath linen, handker chiefs, towels and curtains. Nothing absorbs and carries the germs or seeds of disease 60 readily as these ; to ambush the ambushing disease germ thereforewe must begin in the laundry. Next as to the method : mere cleansing is not enough, for some disease germs may laugh at boiling water, and may even bread in commoner sorts of soapsuds. The only way to deal with the disease germ is to kill it, because its life is its power to infect, and only when dead is it harmless: so we must not only' begin with the laundry, but must find a laundry soap which is also a strong disinfec...

The Cavorting Cow and Straying Steeds. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
The Cavorting Cow and Straying Steeds. Sub-inspector Henry Dyball provided the menu, or at least the raw material for it. at Lithgow Police Court on Tuesday. We call him sub-inspector in view of the fact that he is under Sanitary Inspector David Owen, of the Municipality of Lithgow. Mr. Jen nings, P.M., did the carving. The first to plead guilty and to get it over quickly was John Bruce, whose cow wan su/ficiently indiscreet as to meander on the municipal thoroughfare within the scope of the inspector's eagle eye. 'He was fined f-/- and 3/- costs. David Macarthur had a charge of three straying horses against him. 'How do you plead?' askeel -'^ r-ierk of the court. 'Well. I don't know what to rio.' came the reply in strong Scotch accent. 'I put them in a paddock on agistn^nt.. and am paying for them.'

TO RENDER MEAT TENDER. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
TO RENDER MEAT TENDER. To make tough meat lender, cover it with boiling water, and put it where it will bw.rely simrnor for several hours.
